Ok so when you guys pick do you have your pick tilted to the right while you play, or the left? I tilt my pick to the left, and I was wondering if there were any other metal players who do the same, because I haven't seen anyone who does it like me. Should I try to pick with my pick tiled to the right, or should I just continue with how I am picking?

Btw I've been playing for 2 years and I play metal.

^^^ Gotta love pointless REPLIES too

Mine changes as I play, sometimes I have to readjust it. I think it's more a matter of style than anything else.

You can have more options for pick attack and accents if you hold it with it tilted to the right(between the pad of the thumb and inside of first finger).

That reply was pretty useless, too.

I tilt it to the right (I suppose), but I oscilliate slightly, so it fits my picking motion better. Do whatever you think feels best.

So your saying I should do whatever feels natural?



exactly

altough i pick in many different ways (my teacher helped me to develope different picking techniques)

different ways = different sounds

My guitar teacher was telling me that it's best to hold the pick straight up and down because it gets rid of the *thuck* sound made when picking with it leaned over.

Does anyone find tilting makes picking fast on one string easier? I'm talking about alternate on one string by the way.
